AcesWebs has over 100 years experience in business IT
Mike and his team have decades of experience between them in the IT and Telecoms business.
Mike has designed and built computer systems for companies in the travel, real estate, manufacturing and other industries. As an example, Mike and his team designed a complete export system for Silver Rain Co., a manufacturer of artificial flowers that automated the manufacturing, export ordering, stock control, and accounting systems.
Mike and his team have also automated the construction design and costing, ordering system for one of the world’s largest construction companies, Thai Konoike Construction. The project took 10 months to complete, and involved finding the best software for their requirements, then sourcing and installing the hardware that included large blueprint scanners, a powerful central server running on a UNIX Operating, and workstations throughout the company to run the CAD/CAM/CAE software required to automate their construction costing system . The resulting system allowed the company to cut the time to produce a construction costing from weeks to minutes.
Mike started his IT life as a Telegraphist in the RAAF. His duties included encrypting and decrypting messages, writing software programs, punch card computer systems (yes, this was a long time ago), tape relay systems, air-to-ground and ground-to-air radio, managing aerial farms and transmission systems, and much more. Mike was proficient at 32wpm morse code, and he types at over 100wpm.
In 1995 Mike acquired his first desktop PC, a Commodore 64, which he says was so much fun to work on he misses it even today. It was on this machine that he learned to program in BASIC. He wrote an English teaching program for Thai companies.
Later, he upgraded to Microsoft and Linux operating systems running on the latest PC’s. His IT office ran on a Linux Server with Windows workstations.
Mike has never stopped learning, gaining expertise in Systems Analysis and database design, including SQL and others.
He was appointed by Magic Software Thailand, and subsidiary of Betagro Computers, to manage their Magic Software 4th Generation programming system Technical Support team. He was also later appointed as the first Dean of the Magic Software University Thailand until he resigned two years later to start his own IT company, Holt WorldWide.
Mike has written business applications for various companies using a variety of programming languages depending on their requirements.
In 2009 Mike sold his IT company and returned to Australia with his family, where he settled on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. He now offers personalized services for individuals and companies.
Mike prides himself on his professional approach to working with clients to help them resolve any IT issues they may have.
